Gobe Productive to go GPL - BeOS based

Gobe Software

Gobe Productive, the famous BeOS (and now Windows/Linux) office suite, is no more. It has been bought by Free Radicals LLC. The good news is that their business plan requires that the entire package be GPL’ed. The even better news is that IIRC, Productive 3 for windows and linux was actually coded to mostly BeAPI and compiled with wrappers to the various platforms. Which means prodctive 3 on BeOS is a VERY real possibility. Read all about it at osnews.

I want to thank Tom and Bruce and all the other great people from Gobe who have worked with us over the years (even after the shift to windows.) It’s a shame to see Gobe, well, go. But it’s great to see such a great product live on.
